    Long time employee, Happy with ability to grow and learn here.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat company for someone looking for long term growth. Company has managed to grow and improve through even the worst of times. Good people and management, good at not micromanaging employees. Lots of training and education opportunities. Good long term plan, not standing pat on past successes.

    ConsMay be challenging for people that dont like to be pushed. A lot is expected of employees, and if you dont buy in you might get passed over.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Overall, not bad.

    Driver/Counter (Current Employee)

    ProsFamily oriented, great training incentives, decent customer experience, nice benefits

    ConsMost advancement is with willingness to relocate, too much pressure on smaller branches to make big numbers, not enough pay for what you deal with day to day.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAdd one more person to 3 man team (small branch) to better desperse stress

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great family owned business!

    Anonymous (Current Employee)

    ProsFamily owned. Treat employees very well. Large, stable company. Been in business since 1922.

    ConsWages are a bit lower than they should be, but are somewhat offset with benefits. Long hours.

    Fantastic company to work for.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe organization encourages collaboration between regions/employees. You always have the opportunity to meet employees from other regions/areas. Advancement opportunities are readily available and the company rewards tenure and training. We are also encouraged to treat the customers right and this is engrained in our company culture. This allows for freedom to do what's necessary for our customer.

    ConsAs the company continues to grow in size and sales, we sometimes get bombarded with new policies, procedures and operations.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to encourage training and to keep the culture of Ewing alive and well. Even though we continue to grow, keep sight of where we started and that we are family owned.

    Great place, with opportunities to advance

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSmall branches and staff give you the ability to create a successful store using your own judgment and ideas. Lots of focus on training and education. Great environment for a long term employee. A lot of opportunities for advancement if you want to take them. Aggressive growth goals have created, and will lead to, tons of advancement opportunities. Pretty good benefit package especially if you are a long term employee. The company is really focused on great customer service.

    ConsFast growth often leads to growing pains. Still sometimes a struggle to find a balance between growing the total number of branches and growing an individual branch. Being one of the highest priced distributors in the industry makes it a struggle to get new customers sometimes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the great work. It is hard to find a company with such a strong vision for the future and a company that values it's long term employees so much.

    Decent company, opportunities for advancement

    COUNTER SALES (Former Employee)

    ProsAdvancement opportunities, at least for low-level employees. Interaction with management, employees get input for how stores run.

    ConsBenefits are not great, long hours, there's always the sense that if management can squeeze another minute of productivity out of you and pay you for a minute less that they'll take it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere's a line where too much efficiency leads to high turnover, you should find that line.

    Depending on location, potential for advancement seems good.

    COUNTER SALES (Current Employee)

    ProsEwing seems to invest highly in new hires.
    Starting pay is decent,and raises have been regular.
    Potential for advancement is good
    Work is light, out of the elements, and relatively low stress. I like the environment

    ConsMany branch personnel seem jaded for some reason.
    The antiquated green screen software has a long learning curve. This need serious updating.
    Branch managers seem to get a lot dumped on their plate.
    Branches seem to be competing against each other so they can reach their numbers.
    Buyers stock the stores, not managers. There can be a disconnect between what we're selling and what buyers stock us with.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOn the whole,I think ewing is headed in the right direction.
